    Some days you wake up & know exactly just what you want to slather all over your face. This was mine!

    Ever Ready 1912, Gemm *8, Nannies Silly Soap - Lime, TSR brush (handle by SirBrian72, knot from another member whose name escapes me right now JHL?), Bond "SpeedRacer" aftershave, aloe vera gel.

    face feels great - this was my first proper soap, bought in 2012 which I'm going to finish this year - still performs as well as ever and has a great lime/herb scent to it. The aftershave is Polish, silly name but another great performer. i keep meaning to do a thread about this brand. If you are ever in Poland pick up one (or more!) of the Bond aftershaves. they cost about 2 quid and are fantastic quality. the shave cream is decent too.

    NSS Traditional revised to see if it is drying as per last month's findings. Full report on Monday once it's been used three times and compared directly with Nuavia. I'm liking this Rockwell razor, second use and this time on plate 4. Have a good weekend

    I read lately that the Clog Pruf had fallen out of love. But I have noticed I'm not the only one to have it in regular rotation. I always get a close result with it, plus I love the mechanics and retro design.

    Good shaves!!!

    Good early morning shave today. Little overcast, but the Blue wants to come through. Taking the Lady and meself out for a nice breakfast. The '63 Slim & Polsiver SI performed brilliantly along with the Stone Cottage Musk. The Acqua Di Gio Profumo finished it off nicely. Have a great day and shave Gents......:thumbsup:

    Vulfix 404 Mixed
    Haslinger Honig
    Ever Ready 1924
    Gem coated ( 3 )
    Alum Rub / Rinse off
    Floid Vigoroso A/S lotion

    After Shaves with DE/ Injectors & AC Single Edge Razors,decided a return to Vintage SE was needed.It certainly for me highlights how easy it is to shave with both Injectors and AC as the ER 1924 requires lots of concentration and care during the Shave , as it seems ready to reward you with a bite if you fail.

    Extremely pleased with the overall quality of the finished Shave, really nice and close with no mishaps or post Shave irritation. The lather from the chosen Soap was very good ,and provided the glide and cushion needed to assist a Razor such as the 1924 deliver a smooth shave. Seems my A/S is nearly finished, and not sure whether to replace it or go for something new.
